Happiness by Cocoa Vanilla Studio | Niki Rowland

Hi there Magpies, Niki here today with two layouts to share using Cocoa Vanilla Studio Happiness. I fall in love with all collections by Cocoa Vanilla, but I think this is my favourite to date (with the possible exception of the two boy collections). Happiness is so full of vibrant colours and gorgeous icons, it makes scrapbooking super easy and its a pleasure to create with.

For my first layout, Icy Happiness, I’m documenting a story about the joys of finally being allowed a Calippo ice lolly. My children don’t exactly go without treats but for some reason they wanted Calippos for the entire holiday but we could’t find them anywhere. They finally got their heart’s desire at a day trip to a waterpark and I think this was the highlight of the holiday!

I just had to cut up that paper that had the frames all over it and use those. I considered arranging them in a grid design but in the end opted to go for layering some of them across the layout with mixed media coming down from them. I used Shimmerz paints to create the paint strips. I embellished tone on tone although mostly kept to two embellishment clusters.

I’ve used a title ‘happiness’ from the Die Cut Titles pack and added some small navy alphas above to create the word ‘icy’ to complete my title.

I’ve used lots of icons from the Ephemera pack and I’ve also added some tangles of gold thread and some stickers from both the Clear Stickers and the Accessory Stickers.

For my second layout today I’ve used that amazing rainbow stripe paper. This is my favourite paper from this collection. I had used the outer edge on a previous layout so was only left with a gutted part so I got creative with what I had left and chopped it up and added it to my page.

I added some pink pom pom trim and stitched with my sewing machine. I then went crazy adding those gorgeous words from the Die Cut Titles pack. They are so beautiful that I thought I would make a feature out of them.

I’ve then embellished using lots of ephemera bits and some stickers from the Accessory Sticker sheet. I also added a couple of perspextives from Bramble Fox.

I have also made three other layouts using this collection. These three have already been shared on social media so you may have seen already, but I thought I’d put them here aswell as they are using the beautiful Happiness collection too:

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you’ve enjoyed my crazy bright layouts! I’ll be back later in the month with two more layouts to share using Cocoa Vanilla Happiness.
